Economic Pulse

November 2018

The Bank of Ireland Economic Pulse came in at 89.9 in November 2018. The index, which combines the results of the Consumer and Business Pulses, was down 2.7 on last month and 0.6 lower than a year ago.

Brexit developments have dominated the news flow in recent weeks, with the negotiations intensifying and speculation rife as the UK and EU sides worked towards a draft deal (a breakthrough came at the end of the November survey period but has been met with a mixed response). Against this backdrop, consumer and business sentiment was at a low ebb this month.
